To examine factors associated with HIV infection in injecting drug users (IDU), the independent and interactive effects of potential risk factors, and geographic differences in risk factors.
IDU entering methadone treatment in New York City, Asbury Park and Trenton in New jersey, Baltimore and Chicago between February 1987 and December 1991 were interviewed using a standard questionnaire and tested for HIV antibodies (n=4584).
Associations of HIV serostatus with race/ethnicity, other demographic characteristics, and injecting and sexual risk behaviors were assessed by logistic regression analyses.
African Americans were at increased risk for HIV in four of the five cities, and Puerto Ricans in two cities.
